AUGUST 2015 FEATURED ARTIST ELIZABETH RAYNOR; FORM AND FUNCTION

FORM AND FUNCTION

Featured Artist Elizabeth Raynor is at The Potters Place during the month of August. Elizabeth is a founding member of The Potters Place and has made very useable functional pottery for over 25 years which can be found in many homes in the Comox Valley and beyond.

Simplicity of form, softness of colour and a peaceful calm are the inspirations for Elizabeth forms and approach to glazing and decoration of her pottery. 

Raynor taught school in Saskatchewan and Alberta and it was during her time in Edmonton that she became interested in clay and j oined the local Potters Guild. It was also there, that she was fortunate enough to be taught and mentored by Naboro Kubo – a fourth generation potter from Japan. The influence of his ideas are still present in her work. Since moving to the Comox Valley, she has been very involved in the Potters Club and has attended N.I.C. pottery classes and manay workshops. The process of learning never stops.

Elizabeth will have many of her new designs on displayed in our FEATURED ARTIST’S WINDOW during this wonderful month of artistic expression. You don’t have to only see art at the wonderful festivals in the valley, you can come any day Monday through Saturday from 10-5pm and see some of the valley’s best potters and ceramic artists under one roof.
